A Turkish Lyft driver was arrested after he stabbed one of his passengers in San Diego.
Police say Ali Kendirli, 33, the Lyft driver who is originally from Izmir, Turkey stabbed a male passenger after getting in an argument with the passengers one male, two female, who didn’t know where their drop off destination was located. San Diego police officers received a call around 1:20 a.m. from the passengers on June 30 in the 6100 block of Caminito Del Oeste.
After stabbing the passenger, Kendrili drove away and only later returned to the scene when officers contacted him. He was arrested on site and taken to San Diego Central jail on a bail of $30,000.
“We have permanently deactivated the driver,” the transportation service said. “Our thoughts are with the passenger, who we have reached out to offer our full support and assistance. We stand ready to assist law enforcement with an investigation,” said Lyft in a statement about the stabbing.
A quick over view of Kendrili’s social media pages review that he follows several Islamic personalities, Turkish news, Muslim journalists, and is a fan of “The Young Turks”, a radical left wing show that was created by political activist and commentator Cenk Uygur, who was raised Muslim and is known for his shameless defense of Islamists and other left wing political radicals.
Following an Islamic terrorist attack at an airport in Istanbul, Turkey, Uygur used the Islamic terror attack to defend Islam, saying, “Don’t blame all Muslims, Muslims are the victims.” Throughout the years, Uygur has received a lot of backlash and criticism over his constant defense of Islam and harsh critique of Christianity and Judaism, despite the fact that he claims he himself is an “atheist”.
After posting bail, Kendrili shared his side of the story, telling Ch. 10 ABC in San Diego that he stabbed the passenger out of self-defense, accusing one of the three passengers of becoming violent first.
Channel 10 seemed to be defending the driver in their article, adding, “The first two addresses were wrong and in the ride-share business…time is money.” However, this is not true. While rideshare apps like Uber and Lyft used to charge passengers based on the time they spent in the car with drivers, Lyft and Uber now pre-calculate the price of rides before a passenger confirms their ride. Lyft and Uber informs users of the estimated cost of their rides beforehand, even giving them cheaper options in the form of “pool” rides that are sometimes shared with other customers.
The San Diego District Attorney’s office declined to file charges against the Lyft driver.
An earlier version of this article described Ali as Islamic, per Ali’s request we have changed Islamic to Turkish.
Forefront GOP Congressional Candidate Files Amicus Brief Against Maine Governor
The forefront Republican candidate to replace Democrat Congressman Jared Golden in Maine’s Second Congressional District has filed paper work against Maine Governor Janet Mills.
Adrienne Bennett announced that she has filed a brief of amicus curiae in the U.S. First Circuit Court of Appeals in favor of local central Maine church’s motion for a temporary restraining order against Governor Janet Mills.
“This is a dangerous moment where Governor Mills is arguing that certain emergencies allow her to trample on the constitutionally protected rights of Mainers. Our churches and all people of faith need to know that when their rights are violated, they are not alone. We must fight back,” said the Republican candidate for Congress.
“Janet Mills is not the head of the church. Her government cannot dictate how, when or to whom we worship. She cannot discriminate against houses of worship and treat them lesser than secular institutions. I urge the court to intervene. We will fight this all the way to the Supreme Court, if necessary.”
Bennett is being represented by Maine attorney Stephen C. Whiting of The Whiting Law Firm who had this to say about the brief filed against Governor Janet Mills, “While the Governor certainly has an interest in protecting public health, all Mainers also have an interest in seeing their Constitutional rights upheld. The Governor cannot use her power to protect public health in a manner that arbitrarily deprives Mainers of the right to free exercise of religion. Therefore, the public interest favors granting Appellant’s motion and preventing further violations of First Amendment freedoms.”
Earlier in the month Pastor Ken Graves and Calvary Chapel of Orrington, Maine filed a federal lawsuit that challenges Maine’s governor Janet Mills closure of places of worship as means to end the spread of COVID-19 in Maine. That story was covered by Big League Politics and can be read here.
